Lantern Lighting Celebration

Saturday, September 19, 2020

More Details To Be Announced

Mark your calendars for our 6th annual Lantern Lighting Celebration — an evening to gather with family, friends and community to honor and remember those we love and miss.

We are still working out the details to ensure that this event can go on as planned while remaining in accordance with state regulations on social distancing. Please check back for more information! 


How it works

Decorate a floating lantern in memory of a loved one with words of love and remembrance (using art supplies provided at the event). As you create your lantern, enjoy expansive views of the cemetery including Lakewood's lake, Jo Pond. 


At dusk, we'll light our lanterns together and release them onto the lake in a beautiful ceremony. The effect is breathtaking and magical — connecting us to our loved ones and to each other.
